Waiting in line for the White House Tour

The 2017 annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research in Washington DC (Twitter #AACR17) officially starts tomorrow, but today was a day full of educational sessions and workshops.

After a day of rain yesterday, it was good to have a dry day for the start of the world’s leading cancer science meeting.

In this post we offer some top-line commentary on those educational sessions we attended; the choice reflects personal interests or current fetishes.

By definition, there is far more excellent research at AACR than we can possibly cover on the blog; so we encourage you to check out the AACR webcasts if you have a specific interest or want to check out a particular session.

We’d also like to congratulate AACR for moving with the times and allowing personal photography and the sharing of content on social media, except where a slide or presentation says “Do Not Post.”

The few slides that I saw today that had “Do Not Post” showed unpublished data. Our longstanding unwritten policy has been not to tweet or share on social media data that clearly states it is unpublished, so this was not an unreasonable request and one we heartily concur with in principle.
